4th of July Rides

 If you are looking to get in a ride or race this 4th of July there are several to choose from for 2012.

The Twin Cities Bicycling Club will hold it's 31st Annual Watermelon Ride starting at Battle Creek Regional Park in Maplewood, MN.  It consists of 15, 25 and 50 mile routes and will conclude with a 4th of July picnic.  This ride has full support for the 15 and 25 mile routes, but the 50 mile route is unsupported so be prepared for flats and minor repairs.  Online pre-registration ends June 30th.  Same day registration is available by filling out the registration form and bringing it to the registration table before the ride start with a check made out to the Twin Cities Bicycling Club.

The Hiawatha Bicycling Club is sponsoring its 13th Annual Tour D'Amico Bicycle Tour.  The tour starts at the Preserve Village Shopping Center in Eden Prairie, MN and will include rides of 29, 46 and 63 miles with hydration stops and full SAG support.  Online registration is available.

Milltown Cycles will be holding their 13th Annual 4th of July Northfield Criterium in Downtown Northfield, MN.  This race event draws some great amateur cyclist from all over the state and if you are not participating, it's exciting  to watch.  Online registration is open until 12 pm the day before the event.

 The Driftless Region Bicycle Coalition has put together the 4th of July Ride.  This is an unsupported 50 or 60 mile ride without rest stops starting at Kistler Park in LaCrescent, MN.  The route will challenge riders as they travel through river valleys and bluffs of the Driftless Region of Southern Minnesota.  Route map
